is a parish-based faith outreach to teenagers.
We launched this in September 2022 and it went really well for all concerned, for both the team leading it and the young people who met with us once a month on a Friday from 7.00 to 8.30 pm.
It provides opportunities and continued support for teenagers to encounter and get to know God in Jesus Christ, through fun and exciting activities, while building faith friendships.
Its aim is to help the young person discover their true value and worth, inspired by Jeremiah 29:11: “I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for your peace, not disaster, reserving a future full of hope for you.”
Each session includes:
- Hospitality with music and refreshments (Pizza!)
- Team building games/icebreakers
- Main Activity
If you know of a teen in the First or Second Year who would be interested, please contact the parish office at [email protected] and one of the team will contact you.
- All leaders have gone through safeguarding training and are Garda-vetted
The mission of youth outreach is a mission for the whole parish community. Teen Hope encourages volunteers within this community to be called forward to lead and animate the Teen Hope Parish Youth Group. These volunteers need to be encouraged and supported by the wider community in their ministry. As the saying goes – it takes a village!
